From August 1961, a Ben Zuckerman suit.
'Broader shoulders, short sleeves and a waistline that indents where nature placed it, are designer Ben Zuckerman's predictions for the 1961 silhouette. To this button-less suit of lightweight red wool jersey, Zuckerman adds a matching leash belt.'

From July 1962- Sugar 'n' Spice-
'New York: Swaggering into the Fall Season is a touch of spice in Ben Zuckerman's creation done in ginger and confetti lacy English Wool Tweed. The walking dress with a slender skirt is topped with a v-front tunic patched with four pockets and has set-in bracelet sleeves. A velvet hat and matching ascot give the ensemble accented highlights.'
Also noted is that the colour of the dress is beige and multi coloured tweed with a background of pale yellow and purple.
